Typical 
Liberty Homes 



Liberty Homes have solved ihe 
housing problem for a multitude 
of families in all parts of ihe 
country. Because of their moder- 
ate price and the ease with which 
they can be built, they are bring- 
ing home ownership within the 
reach of thousands who might 
otherwise never be able to have 
a home of their own. 







Liberty ^Homes 



OFFICE OF THE 
VICE-PRESIDENT 



Dear Friend: 

Here is our catalog of new Liberty Home designs. The more carefully 
you read it, the more convinced you will be, I believe, that it 
offers you the opportunity of securing a first-quality home at a 
price considerably lower than the same type of home would ordinarily 
cost you. 

There is no easier or quicker way of getting your new home built 
and completed, ready to move into, than to buy it on the Liberty 
plan. You simply order the particular house that you want and 
we ship you at once the materials that you will need in building 
it — lumber cut to fit, ready to erect — also sash, doors, 
paint, glass, hardware, etc. Instead of having to shop around and 
buy all of the various kinds of materials, item by item, you re- 
ceive them from us all in one lot, at a quantity price much 
lower than you would otherwise have to pay. 

During the 43 years that we have been in business, thousands of 
families in all parts of the country have done just what you are 
doing now. They studied our catalog, selected the Liberty Home 
that suited them best, filled out the order blank and, surprising 
as it may seem, had their home finished and were living in it 
before the next rent-day rolled around. How well pleased they are 
you will see when you read their letters on the following pages. 

The way is open to you to secure a Liberty Home just as many 
others have done before you. Here's the way to go about it J Read 
the catalog carefully. Pick out the home you like best and decide 
which of the four payment plans you prefer {see last page). Then 
just mail the order blank. Or, if you wish any additional informa- 
tion before filling out your order, write me a letter on the back 
of this sheet. I am not sure how long we can maintain our pres- 
ent EXTREMELY LOW PRICES, as the costs of building materials are 
constantly rising. So it will be to your advantage to place your 
order as soon as you possibly can. Mail your order or write me 
today I 

Sincerely yours,

"V7"OUR home is the most impor- 
•*■ tant purchase you will ever 
make. Probably the largest in dol- 
lars and cents; certainly the one 
that will most directly influence your com- 
fort, happiness and well being for many 
years to come. 

Surely, in considering this purchase, 
your first thought should be to provide the 
greatest possible assurance that your new 
home will be all you expected it to be. 
Liberty Homes and the Liberty Ready-Cut 
System give you that assurance. The Lib- 
erty System takes the gamble and uncer- 
tainty out of building — protects you from 
the heartaches that result from faulty 
planning, excessive costs, and improper or 
inferior materials. 

In every Liberty Home the construction 
is of the same type as that of the attrac- 
tive, costly Architect-Built homes you 
have often seen and admired. They are 
erected in exactly the same manner as any 
other sturdy, substantial home is built, 
each individual piece of material stoutly 
and permanently nailed in place in the 
same way that first-class carpenters are ac- 
customed to build good homes. 



Briefly, the Liberty System of Home 
Building is simply this — a system by 
means of which you can select from a 
large variety of styles and sizes of houses 
the one which ideally meets your idea of 
the kind of a home you would like to own. 
It offers you the protection of a Complete 
Home-Building Service, including not 
only the architectural plans and working 
instructions, but also the lumber, meas- 
ured and cut in the proper lengths to 
conform exactly with the building plans. 
You are also furnished with the necessary 
sizes and quantities of nails, the hardware, 
paint, stains, varnish, doors, windows, 
roofing and other materials specified in 
detail on another page of this catalog. 

The result is a home that is not only 
architecturally correct in every particular 
but is built according to plans which have 
been tried and proved by hundreds of 
others like yourself who wanted a first- 
quality home at a fair and reasonable price. 

Now turn the page and read the com- 
plete story of the Liberty Ready-Cut Sys- 
tem and its many advantages from the 
standpoint of quality, ease of construction 
and, most important of all, LOW COST.

jN BUILDING a house, the part of 
the work that is the hardest and 
takes up the most time is the 
measuring, sawing and planing the lumber 
— getting it ready to put up. The actual 
work of nailing it in place is easily and 
quickly done. 

Make it a point some day to watch a 
carpenter building a house and see how 
much time he spends with his rule and 
pencil, figuring and measuring the lengths 
and angles of the various pieces of lumber, 
and then count up how many hours each 
day are consumed in sawing all of the 
lumber by hand. You will realize at once 
that a good share of the carpenter's time 
is being wasted in doing things which 
could be done much more quickly and 
cheaply by machinery. 

The Liberty System of Home Building 
eliminates entirely the expense of having 
to pay a carpenter for the hours he spends 
every day in getting the lumber ready to 
nail in place, In our mills the work of 
measuring, sawing and mitering is all done 
by machinery — not only in a fraction of 
the time it takes to do it by hand but also 
with absolute accuracy. 



The result is that you will not have to 
pay a carpenter nearly as much to build a 
Liberty Home because it will not take him 
nearly so long. In fact, in many cases, it 
is not necessary to hire a carpenter at all. 
With the difficult measuring and sawing 
eliminated, you can take advantage of the 
assistance offered by your friends and 
neighbors, and trust them with the work 
of nailing- — because the lumber is cut to 
exact size and fits into its proper place 
without any alterations. 




Away With 

Tedious 

Measuring 

and Sawing! 



By purchasing the materials for your 
home from us, cut to size and ready to 
nail in place, you save hours and hours of 
work. 

For example, it takes a carpenter about 
eight hours to measure and saw the rafters 
for the roof of an average size house. In 
our mill, however, we can saw the rafters 
for two or three dozen houses in the same 
length of time. 

When you consider that the same saving 
applies throughout the various other parts 
of the construction, you will see at once 
why the Liberty System enables you to 
build your home at such an extremely low 
cost. 





8 HERE is no magic in our being 
able to furnish you with the ma- 
terials for building your home at 
a price that will save you a substantial sum 
of money. The explanation is very simple! 

In the first place, we manufacture an 
immense number of homes every year — 
and quantity production results in tre- 
mendous savings in the building of homes 
just as it does in the building of automo- 
biles, refrigerators, stoves or any other 
manufactured product. 

In the second place, the mammoth Lib- 
erty mills are equipped with the most 
modern electrically operated machinery, 
designed to cut lumber accurately and eco- 
nomically. Such efficient production 
methods enable us to produce the finished 
product at a fraction of the usual cost. 

Thirdly, the business we do is not con- 
fined to one small community, but is 
nation-wide in its scope. Consequently we 
are able to purchase materials in tremen- 
dous quantities at much more advantageous

Lumber

to Fit 



prices than if we had to buy our lumber, 
paints, hardware and other materials in 
small lots as a local contractor would have 
to do. 

Then, too, we employ no agents, solici- 
tors or traveling salesmen, whose salaries 
have to be added to the cost of what we 
sell. This, in itself, results in a consider- 
able saving of money to you. 

But the savings above mentioned are not 
all by any means. Read on and see! 

Not a Piece of Lumber Wasted? 

Waste is one of the greatest enemies of 
Life. It robs your energy. It robs your 
bank account. Did you ever notice the 
heaps of wasted materials lying around a 
newly finished house. This wasted mate- 
rial costs the owner good money, just as 
much as the material actually used, yet it 
was thrown away. It makes you feel good 
to know that when you build the Liberty 
way, all this waste has been eliminated and 
you pay only for the material that is 
actually used for construction. 

Not a Penny Thrown Away! 

Good building material is too valuable 
to be wasted. Through scientific planning 
and manufacturing methods, every inch of 
good lumber is used. Where there is not 
waste, there is no overcharge. In building 
a Liberty Home you profit from these ef- 
ficient production principles. 

But this is not all that you save — as you 
will see when you read the following pages. 




No Extra Fees 

for Architectural Service 

WHEN you build a Liberty Home you 
receive the benefit of valuable architec- 
tural service without having to pay any extra 
fee. Every Liberty Home is designed by an ex- 
perienced architect, and the materials are selected 
and manufactured exactly In accordance with 
his detailed plans and specifications. 

Our architectural service assures you that your 
home will be properly constructed in every par- 
ticular. On the other hand, if you hire a carpen- 
ter to furnish the material and build you a house 
for a certain sum of money, there is no way for 
you to know definitely what the final results will 
be. He may scrimp here and there, perhaps splic- 
ing short pieces of lumber together where full 
length pieces are required. The result usually is 
a house of flimsy construction. 



X^X "JEARS ago, before the Liberty Method 
\£J y of home-building was established, the 
cy ^ 3 ideal way to build a home was to have 
the work supervised from beginning to end 
by a capable architect who was experienced 
in designing and building good homes. An 
architect understands proper construction 
methods; he knows the proper materials to 
use for each particular purpose; he sees to 
it that your home is built exactly in accord- 
ance with approved plans and specifications. 







Wouldn't you like a home with an 
attractive living room like this? 





Fine Substantial Homes 

''HERE is nothing new or experi- 
mental about the construction 
principles followed in the design- 
ing of Liberty Homes. They are the out- 
growth of 43 years of experience in the 
building of homes of a fine, substantial 
type — homes numbered well up into the 
thousands in practically every section of 
the country. 




A cosy bedroom in the home 
of a Liberty owner 



One of the outstanding superiorities of 
Liberty construction is that every piece of 
lumber is of adequate size and strength to 
meet the particular requirements of the use 
to which it is to be put. 

For example, where experience has shown 
certain timbers, such as girders, joists, stud- 
ding and rafters, must be of a particular 
weight or dimension in order to insure the 
proper degree of sturdiness and rigidity, 
our architects see to it that the specifica- 
tions, in every case, fully meet such re- 
quirements. 

Make This Simple Comparison 

Contrast this with houses that you see a 
carpenter erecting without architectural 
supervision. Observe how the carpenter 
has filled in here and there with crooked 
boards and short pieces full of knots. Then 
when the house is finished, squint along 
the walls and see if they are straight. See 
if the rooms are the same dimension at 
one side as at the other by examining the 
floor boards, or by looking to see if the 
wallpaper has the same pattern in the cor- 
ners of the room from top to bottom. 




ATA 
MODERATE 
PRICE 




Perfect 

Construction 

Correctly Planned 
In Every Detail 



'N THE Liberty System 
of home building, noth- 
ing is left to chance. 
Every construction detail is fig- 
ured out by our architects in 
advance, so that when the house 
is shipped to you, every piece of 
lumber is cut the right length and at the 
correct angle to fit properly. Consequently, 
when the work of erection is completed, 
you have a house that stands four square 
— with walls straight and plumb, and every 
detail of its construction carried out ex- 
actly as called for in the plans. 

Even though you were to pay an archi- 
tect several hundred dollars to design your 
home, you could have no home more 
solidly and substantially constructed than 
a Liberty. 







Conforms to Building Codes 

The construction of Liberty Homes is 
carried out in strict accordance with the 
best modern engineering practice and will 
fully meet the requirements in practically 
all localities. 

If, however, there should be any change 
from standard construction that your local 
building code requires, we will be glad, 
when requested, to provide for such 
changes and furnish the materials accord- 
ingly, charging only for the extra mate- 
rial, if any, that may be needed. 



Life is more enjoyable 
in a home of 
your own.

The Money You Spend for Rent 
Will Soon Pay for a Home 

HE only way to protect yourself 
against rising rents is to build a 
home of your own. Otherwise you 
are forever at the mercy of landlords and 
are forced to pay whatever they choose to 
demand. How much more pleasant it is to 
have a home of your own, free from con- 
stant worries about being obliged to move, 
should your landlord take a notion to raise 
your rent beyond what you can afford to 
pay! 

And, best of all, think how nice it is to 
have a home of your own when you get 
along in years and your income drops! 
Then it will be harder than ever to meet 
the monthly rent payments. Decide now to 
protect yourself from this future burden 
by building a home of your own this very 
month. There is nothing that will give you 
greater satisfaction, comfort, and a sense 
of security in years to come! 



Change in Floor Plans 

May Be Made to Suit Your 

Individual Taste 

The plans for each and every Liberty 
Home shown in this catalog have been de- 
veloped by our architects with great care, 
resulting in plans that are most practical 
from the standpoint of convenience in 
arrangement, as well as economy in build- 
ing. We recommend you choose the design 
that suits you best and build it just as 
planned by our architects. Maximum sav- 
ings will be the result. 

If you should find, however, that minor 
changes in the plan or in the specifications 
would be desirable in your particular case, 
we will be glad to accommodate you by 
making such changes which our architects 
consider practical.

Save the Money That 
You Would Otherwise Have to Pay Out! 




'HE Liberty method of construc- 
tion is so simple that many pur- 
chasers of Liberty Homes do all 
of the building themselves. If you have the 
time, you will save just that much more 
money, and, in addition, you will have a 
great deal of pleasure. 

But, whether or not you do the build- 
ing yourself, the Liberty method enables 
you to save money by being your own 
contractor. The fact that Liberty con- 
struction plans are so much more complete 
than the usual architects' drawings makes 
it possible to build a Liberty home without

the least difficulty. 

The figures on the next page will give 
you an idea as to how long it will take to 
erect the particular Liberty home you 
want, if you hire one carpenter and two 
helpers to do the work. You can, of course, 
shorten this time considerably by arrang- 
ing to help in whatever spare time you 
have, thereby also reducing the expense of 
carpenter labor. 

You will see by the letters from our cus- 
tomers (pages 43 and 45) that many of 
them had no outside help at all — yet they 
did not have the least bit of trouble.

For attractiveness in outward ap- 
pearance and convenience in interior 
arrangement, it would be difficult to 
find a home more appealing than the 
charmingly designed Cornell. 

Departing from the more conven- 
tional square or rectangular type of 
house, its jutting front and outward- 
extending living room give it a dis- 
tinguished appearance that is seldom 
found except in much more expen- 
sive homes. The slatted Colonial shut- 
ters and the front gable, with its 
circular window set off by a back- 
ground of plain matched siding, 
combine to contribute to the exterior 
a touch of distinction, while the dou- 
ble layer and 12-inch exposure of the 
shingles on the sidewall creates an 
effect that is unusually pleasing. 

When you study the floor plan, you 
will be immediately impressed by the 
size of the living room. Measuring 18 
feet in length and 12 feet in width, it 
provides ample room not only for an 
abundance of chairs and occasional 
tables but also for a grand piano. 
This room, as well as all of the others, 
has a full ceiling height of 8 feet. 

Among the other notable features 
are a large guest closet off the vesti- 
bule, a clothes closet in each of the 
bedrooms, and a linen closet open- 
ing off the hallway.

Seldom will you find a home that can 
compare with the Mayfair from the 
standpoint of an attractive exterior 
combined with a well-planned interior. 
In fact, it is hard to imagine how 
either one could be improved to add a 
higher degree of beauty or a greater 
degree of convenience than has been 
attained in this superbly modern home. 

With double-lap shingles accentuating 
the breadth of its 30 ft. front, and with 
slatted Colonial shutters to lend a touch 
of color and contrast, the Mayfair cart- 
not but excite the admiration of all 
who have an eye for beauty. Everyone 
who sees it is immediately filled with 
the desire to own it. 

Glance at the floor plan and observe 
what a large living room the Mayfair 
provides. Then look at the kitchen and 
see how a series of cabinets (Style C-4) 
can be arranged along the right-hand 
side, with the sink and work-table in 
the center, directly in front of the win- 
dow. And do not overlook the cosy 
dining-alcove, just to the left, with a 
recessed space for a china cabinet. 

You will like the convenient location 
of the bathroom — between the two 
bedrooms — and also the provision for a 
closet in each bedroom, with an extra 
guest closet off the vestibule. In fact, 
the more carefully you study the May- 
fair, the more delighted you will be 
with its completeness in every way.

^tttactiise » Economical - Well Planned 

The neat English exterior of this favorite design, with the 
brown stained sidewall shingles, encloses an interior plan that 
will please the tastes of many modern families. Modern home 
makers require more in a home than an attractive exterior, as 
they become more and more economical in the saving of time 
and steps. Convenience is one of the first requisites of a good 
design. In both plans of the Wellington we find the happy 
combination of an attractive exterior and a most convenient 
plan combined with good taste and real economy. ^^% 

Plan A is designed for the family requiring only two bed- 
rooms with a large attic space that can easily be made access- 
ible by having an attic stairway leading up out of the kitchen 
over the present cellar stairs. The small additional cost for 
attic stairs, extra door, etc., will be quoted on request. 

In Plan B the large 
attic space has been 
utilized to provide for 
two bedrooms in addi- 
tion to the splendid large 
bedroom on the first 
floor. 

Ornamental window 
shutters and flower 
boxes are furnished for 
front windows as shown

To look at the pleasant exterior design and to visit its 
well-arranged interior, no one would guess that the Con- 
cord is priced as low as the figure shown on our price list. 

The Concord is a charming home that offers you the 
choice of two good plans with large, comfortable rooms 
with generous closet space. Plan A is arranged with a 
grade cellar stairway. In Plan B the grade entrance ad- 
dition as shown on page 47 should be used when a cellar 
stairway is desired. 

In the Concord every inch of space is used to good 



advantage, and whichever plan you choose, you will have 
a home that will give you much more satisfaction than 
your money could buy anywhere else. 

And here's another thing in its favor — the roomy attic 
can easily be finished off to make another bedroom. 

Shingles are furnished for the sidewalls with gray 
creosote stain for two full brush coats. These shingles 
are guaranteed to give satisfactory service for 25 years 
as explained on. page 41. Shutters and flower boxes fur-

In this popular home, the St. Regis, we are proud to 
offer the very latest style of home, from the standpoint 
of exterior design as well as interior arrangement. A de- 
lightful balanced effect is given by the sweeping lines of 
the roof which extends down past the chimney on one 
side and over a trelliscd archway on the other side, giving 



it a total frontage of 38 feet. The exterior may either 
be shingled, as shown above, or finished with wide siding.

4jome ojj llnu.5u.al (?katm and &oyn&55 




If you have had in mind that when you 
eventually built a home it would be one that 
was cosy-looking, with a latticed porch on 
which you could sit and while away the long 
summer evenings, you will find in the Brighton 
your heart's desire. And you can depend upon 
it that passersby will gaze with envious eye— 
because here is indeed a home of outstanding 
attractiveness. 

One of the features contributing to its beauty 
is the plain matched siding in the porch gable, 
which contrasts with the double-lapped shingles 
on the sidewalls. At the same time, the circu- 
lar window and the slatted Colonial blinds add 
an ornamental touch that is decidedly pleasing. 

A generous size living room, with large 
windows to make it light and airy, is another 
feature that makes the Brighton unusually de- 
sirable. Then, too, each of the bedrooms has a 
clothes closet, and there is an extra closet off 
the hall for the storage of linens. All of the 
rooms have a ceiling height of 8 feet. 

And don't overlook the convenient kitchen 
arrangement, with a sink at one end of the 
windows, a breakfast nook at the other, and 
a cabinet in style C-S or C-6 along the rear 
wall.

The charm of this model home, its delightful homelike 
quality, does not depend upon elaborate, costly features, 
but is the result of good proportions in every detail— The 
interior plan is in keeping with the attractive exterior. 
The large comfortable rooms, cheerful fireplace and 
pleasant porch, leave little to be desired. The downstairs 
bedroom is a feature many desire, and upstairs there are 



the two additional bedrooms easily accessible to the bath- 
room. Ample closet space is provided with individual 
closets for each of the three bedrooms and convenient 
guest closet off the vestibule entrance. Shingles are fur- 
nished for the sidewalls or siding will be substituted for 
the sidewall shingles as explained in the detail specifica- 
tions. Height of ceilings 8 feet, both floors.

The NEWPORT— Vcfykfol 

(2&v2e God Colonial— Udeal Plan 



This handsome and distinctive Cape Cod Colonial home 
has won for itself a place high in the esteem of home- 
builders everywhere. With an exterior as delightful as 
the Newport it is not surprising to find the interior ar- 
rangement equally as desirable — A large living room, four 
light airy bedrooms all convenient to the bathroom. One 
corner of the large kitchen will provide ample space for 



dining. Since the Newport has such a complete, comfort- 
able living arrangement on the first floor, an alternate 
plan is offered which provides for an unfinished attic in 
place of the regular 2nd floor plan. Should you need only 
2 bedrooms at present you can build the "Newport Al- 
ternate Plan" now and then finish the upstairs later. 
Height of ceiling-5, both floors, 8 feet.

The VAN DYKE 



This beautiful Colonial home has the exterior grace and 
dignity and interior spaciousness that usually come only 
in homes of much higher price. It is this combination of 
charm, comfort and economy that makes the Van Dyke 
a most popular design decades after its model first flour- 
ished in the hospitable Colonies. The use of siding for 
the first story and stained shingles for the gables and 
dormer sidewalls is most appropriate, however, you may 
specify siding in place of the stained shingles if you desire. 
From the moment you enter the Van Dyke through the 



shuttered Colonial entrance you are impressed with its air 
of roominess. Every detail in the interior plan bespeaks 
comfort and hospitality. Not a feature is lacking that 
would make this a more desirable home. And like all 
Liberty Homes the Van Dyke has those fundamentals 
that insure lifetime satisfaction — yet at a cost considerably 
less than you would pay for a home of commonplace 
design, inferior construction and materials. Height of 
ceilings 8 feet. Read the detailed specifications beginning 
on page 40.

The RICHMOND 



Exterior design makes for desirability and determines 
the true value of a home equally as much as the interior 
arrangement. In the Richmond, a true Cape Cod Colonial 
design, you have a home with an exterior that is perfect 
to the smallest detail, and an interior arrangement that 
provides the maximum in comfort and convenience. There 
is something quite satisfying and restful about the Rich- 
mond with its shingled sidewalls, the formal entrance, 
quaint dormers, shuttered windows. The floor plan is of 
a well established and popular type, having the entrance 
in the center, a large living room on one side opening onto 



the attractive side porch, and on the other side the dining 
room and kitchen. Notice the attractive bay window in 
the dining room with its built-in window seat. Adjoining 
the large kitchen and handy to the living room is the rear 
entry and down-stairs toilet. 

The open stairway leads up out of the vestibule to a 
roomy, well-lighted hall upstairs which connects with the 
three bedrooms and bath. Although shingles are regularly 
furnished for the sidewalls, siding would be in good taste 
and will be furnished if desired. Height of ceilings, both 
floors, 8 feet.

The REGENT—0 Mo*t V*toAU 

2-£toiy Colonial - ■fitttactive - £conomice.L 



Few homes possess such a quiet, graceful dignity as 
this very desirable two-story Colonial design. The clean 
lines of the Regent with wide siding and shuttered win- 
dows make it most attractive to the eye. Modern treat- 
ment to the exterior is attained by the matched V-Joint 
siding used on the front wall down to the sills of the 
second story windows. The compact plan of the Regent 



has been laid out to provide every modern comfort and 
all at a cost that will come well within the means of the 
average family — The generous size living room with porch 
at the rear, ample closet space and the three light, airy 
bedrooms and bath all opening off the cheerful hall leaves 
nothing to be desired. Height of ceilings, both floors, 
8 feet.

The WORTHINGTON 



To prospective home builders who have looked high 
and low for an attractive, well planned, six-room home 
at a price within the means of the average family, the 
Worthington should have a strong appeal. It cannot help 
but satisfy those who seek the maximum in living com- 
fort for a small investment. 



The floor plan arrangement is ideal with an unusually 
large comfortable living room, dining room, kitchen and 
three splendid bedrooms. One bedroom is conveniently 
located on the first floor with a private toilet. Closet 
space is ample. Shingles furnished for sidewalls with 
the color of stain you prefer. Height of ceilings S'. 





The VERNON 




The lasting satisfaction one derives from a home de- 
pends largely on its exterior attractiveness, and from 
that standpoint, too. the Vernon is sure to win admira- 
tion. It is one of the most interesting new designs of 
the modern architectural period— beauty— convenience- 
practicability — roominess, all at a low cost. Rarely does 
one find a home with so many outstanding features. 

As one enters the Vernon he is at once impressed with 
its air of roominess. Plastered archways connecting the 
living room with the front hall and the dining room 
gives a feeling of spaciousness. Two cheerful bedrooms, 
each one occupying a corner of the house and located 
handy to the bath, the very convenient kitchen, and the 
large attic, make this a home that truly deserves to win 
the approval of all those who see it. Height of ceilings 
8'6", h

The TACOMA 



We take a great deal of pride in presenting the Tacoma 
as we feel that it will meet a long-felt want in the hearts 
of many. It not only has beauty in every detail of its 
exterior, but an exceptionally we'll laid out interior plan 
as well. 

One of the features of the Tacoma which appeals to 
many home builders, is to have a home in which you 
have a complete living arrangement on the first floor and 
have it practical at very little extra expense to have addi- 



tional rooms finished off on the 2nd floor at some future 
time. 

The regular price of the Tacoma includes the stairway 
to attic, 2x8" 2nd floor joists, windows as shown and attic 
flooring so that the arrangement shown on the suggested 
plan below can be carried out at a minimum cost. The 
price of the materials needed for completing the 2nd floor 
plan as shown will be quoted on request. 

Height of ceilings: first floor S'6", second floor 8'0".

The exterior walls of the Tacoma are planned to be covered with 
clear Red Cedar shingles, stained a rich brown. For the flower 
boxes, window shutters, porch columns, etc., we suggest a light 
cream color that will harmonize nicely with the brown shingles.

The LA SALLE 



Here is a delightful five-room home that has met with 
enthusiastic acceptance among home builders everywhere. 
It is a design that seems to portray the suburban neigh- 
borhood of happy, contented home owners. 




Among the world's riches there are a few whose value 
cannot be reckoned in terms of dollars and cents. Not 
the least of these is that deep satisfaction which comes 
from home-ownership — the knowledge that in your name 
stands the title to a cottage on a quiet 
street — a yard, a garden of beautiful 
flowers — a refuge from the eternal pur- 
suit of business — a home, within which 
you will find most of the joy and hap- 
piness that this life offers. 

The LaSalle has the typical colonial 
entrance in the center, balanced with 
the attractive grouping of three win- 
dows and flower box on each side. On 
the end is the pleasant porch. Note the 
exceptionally large, well-proportioned 
living room. A fireplace may be con- 
structed without any sacrifice to the 
present convenient arrangement as 
shown below. 

All in all the LaSalle is about as 
perfectly designed a bungalow as any 
home builder could wish for. It gives 
just the right combination of coziness 
with roominess, comfort and handsome 
appearance, and its low price will be 
the most welcome surprise of all. Height 
of ceilings, either plan, 9 feet.

The NANTUCKET 

-fin 1/deal (fataa a- attacked Six JQoom 4Joma 



Planned on traditional lines of early New England arch- 
itecture and accommodated to the requirements of present- 
day living, this prize-winning Cape Cod Cottage is a 
perfect example of sane, efficient planning. Although com- 
pact, it has ample floor space with the rooms arranged 
to afford the privacy all too often lacking in small houses. 

Economical planning should, and in the Nantucket does, 



provide for the matter of low upkeep as well as original 
building cost. Having eight-foot ceilings on both floors, 
it is easy to heat. The attached garage is a particularly 
desirable feature from the standpoint of construction and 
design as well as convenience. Aside from being a per- 
fect, practical plan, it is also a hospitable little home and 
a sound and readily salable investment.

ask us how we do it. Certainly they find no signs of

at several hundred

The EDMUND 




The attractive simplicity of design which charac- 
terizes the Edmund makes it the ideal type of 
home for those whose taste in architecture leans 
toward the simple and dignified rather than the 
ornate. With the shingles stained white, and the 
Colonial slatted shutters in a pleasing shade of 
brown, the effect is highly entrancing. The color 
combination may, of course, be varied, according to 
the taste of the individual purchaser, as we supply 
both paint and stain in any color desired. 

Differing from many of the other Liberty Homes 
in floor plan, this model has a living room lighted 
by three windows, one at the front, and two at the 
sides. Besides being unusually large, the living 
room has another feature that you cannot help but 
appreciate — a convenient closet at the rear for guest 
wraps. Each of the bedrooms also has its own 
individual closet, and there is still another closet 
off the hall which can be used either for clothing 
or for linens, as desired. 

A notable feature, seldom found except in large 
size houses, is the dining alcove, located between 
the living room and the kitchen. Imagine this cosy 
room daintily furnished with a modern dining set, 
and with bright colored curtains on the window! 
Could you think of anything that would contribute 
more to making every mealtime an occasion to be 
looked forward to? 

Now glance at the convenient kitchen arrange- 
ment! On one side, in a recessed nook, space is 
provided for a range and a refrigerator, while on 
the opposite side you can have a cabinet arrange- 
ment like C-4, shown on page 46. With everything 
arranged to best advantage, here is truly a step- 
saving kitchen! 

If you are planning on a moderately priced home, 
and yet one that has every modern feature, we 
commend this model to your careful consideration.

Liberty Homes are sturdy homes because the 
materials which go into them are the proper kind 
for the particular place used and are of unques- 
tionable quality — selected and graded with un- 
usual care. But this is not all! Every joist, every 
stud, every header, every rafter, is of the right 
size and strength necessary to support the maxi- 
mum load it is expected to carry. Every piece 
of framing material is cut accurately to insure 



snug-fitting joints. The joists and studding are 
doubled around openings and properly braced 
at all crucial points so that there is no sagging 
or swaying. The completed structure stands firm 
and solid — strong and sturdy, from foundation 
to peak of roof. There is no better type of con- 
struction than that used in Liberty Homes, as 
you will see when you read the detailed specifi- 
cations which follow. 



Here's What Goes Into a Liberty Home! 



Triple Studs 
at Corners 



Framing Material 

No. 1 Fir, carefully selected for quality and 
strength and thoroughly seasoned. This material is

ness, accurately cut 
to lit and marked 
to conform with 
the complete detail 
working plans. 

Girders 

No. 1 Fir, built 
up of three 2x8's 
are furnished for 
all homes except- 
ing the Castle- 
wood, Clinton A,

have girders built 
up of three 2x6's.

2x6" Wall Plates are furnished for around the 
entire tup of foundation wall.

2x8" first floor joists spaced 16" on centers are 



2x8" Attic Floor 
Joists, spaced 16" 
on centers are fur-

to the attic.

2 x 6" Ceiling 
Joists spaced 16" 
on centers are fur-

Wall and Partition Plates 

A single 2x4" plate is used at the bottom and a 



^0-' 



, 



40 



double 2x4" plate at the top of all walls and par- 
titions. This forms a "Fire Stop" which prevents 
any circulation of air between the studding from 
cellar to attic, thereby reducing the lire hazard and 
in addition results in a much warmer and more 
substantial home. 




Studding 

2x4" spaced 16" on centers for all outside walls 
and partitions. Studs and headers are doubled 
around openings. Triple studs furnished at corners. 

Bridging — Tie Plates 

Cross-bridging, cut to fit ready to nail in place is 
furnished for all floor joist spans. On all spans up to 
12 feet a single row of bridging is furnished. On all 
spans 14 feet and over two rows of bridging are 
furnished. 

Sheathing 

1x6" selected No. 2 Silver Fir, cut to fit. is fur- 
nished as a sub-floor for entire floor surface on 
both first and second floors and for sidewall sheath- 
ing on all exterior walls under the siding or shingles. 
Silver Fir is one of the finest materials available for 
use as sheathing. It is one of the stiffest and strong- 
est conifers in proportion to its weight — contains no 
pitch or resin — is an excellent insulation against heat 
and cold. Heavy asphalted insulating building paper- 
is supplied for between the subflooring and finish 
flooring on both floors and between the sidewall 
sheathing and siding or shingles on the sidewalls. 

Roof Boards 

1x4" Silver Fir roof boards, spaced 2" apart are 
furnished for all roof surfaces. Spacing the roof 
boards in this manner permits air to get at the 
shingles underneath thereby insuring a long lasting 
roof. When Asphalt shingles are ordered, 1x6" roof 
boards are furnished laid tight. 

Furring 

All necessary furring material is furnished as re- 
quired. This includes 2x2" material to fur out par- 
titions for soil pipe, 1x6" partition backing, etc. 

Roof Shingles 

16" No. 1 "Ccrtigrade" Red Cedar shingles, laid 
with a 5" exposure, are furnished for both the main 
roof and porch roofs. These high grade shingles, 
100% edge-grain, 100% clear and 100% heartwood 
can be expected to have a life of more than 35 years 
under average conditions. They are guaranteed by 



the manufacturer to give satisfactory service for not 
less than 25 years. (Shingle stain for roof shingles 
not furnished.) 

Asphalt Shingles 

Barrett's guaranteed Asphalt shingles are optional 
in place of the Red Cedar shingles for the roof at 
the extra price as quoted on price list. Illustrated 
folder describing the Barrett's shingle will be sent on 
request.

with metal miters for corners, is furnished for the 
sidewalls of the Vernon, Regent and Van Dyke. For 
all other designs showing siding, J/$x6" Clear Red- 
wood or Red Cedar Bevel siding (our option) is 
furnished. 

Sidewalls — Shingles 

16" No. 1 "Certigrade" Red Cedar Shingles arc 
furnished for finishing the exterior sidewalls of all 
designs where shingled sidewalls are shown in the 
illustration. These shingles are the same high quality 
as the roof shingles, being 100% edgegrain, 100% 
clear and 100% heartwood and when properly ap- 
plied on sidewalls can be expected to last indefinitely. 
Shingles are laid in single courses with an exposure 
of 7" to the weather except on the Brighton, Cornell 
and Mayfair designs which have the sidewall shingles 
laid in double courses (two layers of shingles in each 
course) with a 12" exposure to the weather. 
Shingle stain is furnished for two full brush coats 
in the color you prefer, either Silver Gray, Rich 
Brown or White. 

If siding should be desired in place of the sidewall 
shingles we will substitute your preference of either 
3/2x6" or J/SxS" bevel siding with three coats of 
paint at a small additional cost which will be quoted 
on request.

nished in addition to two full coats of water-spar 
varnish. 

Fireplace and Chimneys 

Although on some of the plans the location of 
fireplaces and chimneys is suggested according to our 
best judgment, we believe it best to leave the final 
decision up to the home builder himself. Therefore, 
the materials are not cut for fireplace or chimney 
openings, and you may locate the chimneys where 
you prefer. If you do not want a fireplace you need 
not build it at all. No materials for fireplaces or 
chimneys are furnished (see masonry materials). 

Masonry Materials 
Plaster Base 

The prices of such items as brick, sand, gravel, 
cement, wallboard, plaster base and plaster arc so 
nearly the same in all localities it is to the advantage 
of our customers to secure these materials from their 
local mason supply dealer as needed. By doing so, 
they can start the foundation work in time to have 
it completed when the Liberty Home arrives. It is 
of utmost importance that the foundation be built 
correctly. We. therefore, furnish complete founda- 
tion plans, which are prepared for each individual 
order showing the proper foundation construction. 
There is no charge for this service. Our aim is to 
aid our customers in every possible way to secure a 
first-quality home in the safest, quickest, most prac- 
tical way and at the very lowest expenditure.

Even Better Than Advertised 
"We are very well pleased with the material you have 
senl us. Everyone that has looked at this lumber has 
said that it is better than I could have gotten at home. 
I have seen many articles in catalogs and then when you 
receive them you find that they have misieprcsenlcd their 
products. I want to say (hat is not the case with your 
products. They were more than I expected." 

Verl Sterns, Iowa 

Took Only 15 Days to Erect 

"At present wc are building the "Tacoma." It took one 
carpenter and two helpers 15 days to erect it, finishing 
work not included. It will take them 3 or 4 days more 
to complete everything. Every piece fitted together just 
like a machine. The carpenters enjoyed erecting it. The 
material was the best grade, none better to be had, and 
plenty of it." E. A. Arndt, Minn. 

Not Another House to Equal It 

"Since seeing some other new homes that were built 
near us, I really appreciate our Liberty home more than 
ever. The layout on floor plan is another thing (besides 
the wonderful lumber) thai most everyone comments on, 
and my husband and I think there isn"t another house 
quite like it. In fact we think it is perject. Thanks to 
you again for making it possible for people like us to 
have such a sweet and lovelv home." 

Mrs. Ralph J. Miller, Pa. 



Man. and Wife Did All the Work 
"I have received your Liberty Home and I am about 
ready to move in. Lumber was in first class shape and 
fitted perfectly. I have done all the work myself with 
the help of my wife and friends and am well satisfied in 
every way." Edward Lambert, N. H. 

House Unharmed .by Hurricane 
"I have only the highest praise for Liberty homes, and 
especially as to their durability. In the recent hurricane, 
our home certainly stood the test. The wind was blowing 
60 miles an hour in the center of the town and it must 
have been blowing even harder out here where we are 
on a hill near the shore of Long Island Sound. All around 
us the trees were torn up by the roots, and houses were 
swept from their foundations. Yet our house stood un- 
harmed through it all. It certainly speaks well for the 
durability of Liberty Homes." E. S. Haines, Conn. 

Had the Best Time of His Life 

"I started my vacation when the lumber came and had 
a carpenter to help me for two weeks. At the end of that 
time we had the roof on. Since then I have been working 
myself and have been having the best time of my life 
doing something I don't know too much about, but getting 
along so well that I know my house is the best built 
home around this part of the country The lumber causes 
everyone to stare, whether the}' know what good lumber is 
or not. It is so much better than lumber bought locally 
that it speaks for itself." A. 0. Grimm, Pa.

rfV WOULD require dozens of pages to re- 
el / produce the multitude of letters which we 
have received from Liberty Home Owners tell- 
ing how well pleased they are over the tremen- 
dous savings they made as compared with what 
they would have had to pay for a home of the 
same quality and size at the prices charged by 



builders or contractors in their own locality. 
The letters below are typical examples of 
what our customers say. Read them. They are 
conclusive proof that you can save hundreds 
of dollars by taking advantage of the Liberty 
Ready-Cut System when you build your new 
home. 



Saved $700 on Materials 
"The carpenter who is doing the work 
erecting our 'Clinton' certainly likes work- 
ing with your materials This is his first 
experience building a Liberty Home and 
he hopes to put up many more ol them. 
We can truthfully say that we have al- 
ready saved about S700.00 " — Joseph 
Patko. N J

\ What These 
\ Owners 



Price Amaic? Carpenters 
"The material you sent for the Columbia "A" is the 
best that any carpenter has seen around here. It was al! 
clearly marked and blueprints complete in every respect 
and your instructions were clear. There have been several 
first class carpenters inspecting my home and all asked 
me how much the lumber cost me. The closest guess was 
S2. 300.00. They call me a liar, but I show them the 
bill and then they just shake their heads." 

Steve Drahushak, N. Y. 

Lumber Dealers Wanted $550 More 
"We received our ''Clinton B" Liberty Home in perfect 
condition. We have had a number of inquiries about 
costs, etc. and most of the inquiries are: 'How can such 
good materials be put up al such low cost?' We secured 
estimates from local and nearby dealers for same amount 
of material. They asked S550.00 more for same." 

O A. Johnson, Conn. 



Saved a Lot of Money 

■'1 suppose you've been wondering how I'm getting 
along with my house, the •Cambridge'. It was completed 
in about one month, iurnace. plastering plumbing, wir- 
ing, ready to live in. The wood part didn't take more 
than ten days with one carpenter. This was his first 
ready-cut house and he said he would never build any- 
thing else if he could help it. 1 certainly saved a lot by 
buying from you." John Gal., Ohio 

Made a Saving of $1,000 
"1 received the Liberty ready-cut nome and can 
noneslly say the material is much better than any 1 could 
have bought locally I saved at least SI. 000.00 Anyone 
who wants to save money and can drive a nail has no 
excuse for not owning a Liberty " 

Russell Thompson, Ind 



A Saving of $2,000 

"We are living in our new home and are 
sure satisfied with it and your prompt 
service and treatment. I consider the ma- 
terial first class, and will say I have saved 
at least $2,000 as compared with what it 
would have cost me if I had bought material 
at home." A. B. Hills, Pa. 



Happy with Savings 

"Lumber arrived in perfect condition and house is 
nearly complete for us to move in. We certainly are well 
pleased with lumber, and saved a lot of money." 

Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Ashbaugh, Pa. 

Figures He Saved $1,500 
"Received my Wellington 'A' in fine condition and it 
certainly is fine lumber. It is as nice lumber as I have 
ever seen going into a house. There have been a few 
lumber salesmen around and have admired the lumber 
very much. We have the home almost under roof. Every- 
thing has fit fine and the blueprints are easily understood. 
Also we have done all the work ourselves outside of get- 
ting a man to help put the roof on and a bricklayer to 
put the fireplace and chimney up. We dug our own 
foundation by hand, laid up the foundation, then put up 
all the houseframing. We figure that we saved about 
SI. 500.00 on" labor and materials and are thankful that 
we sent for vour catalog when we did." 

Albert M. Mohn, Wis. 

Low Price Surprises Everyone 

"At present, I am building my 'Concord' Liberty 
home and I am very well pleased with the lumber you 
have sent me. I have had very many people stop to 
inspect the home and they do not believe that I have 
paid so little for my home, as they tell me that it is 
impossible to receive such good lumber for such a small 
price." Lloyd A. Deemer, Pa. 

Saved at Least $500 

"l find material of first grade, as good, if not better, 
than I could have bought locally. I also know that any- 
one can put one up without carpenter experience, and 
that I saved at least S500.00 on our home." 

B. O. Shadman, Pa.

Payment Plans. 



To accommodate all our customers we offer several different payment plans. 
Naturally, the most economical way to buy is for cash, But if it is not convenient 
for you to forward the entire cash with your order you may choose any one of 
the other payment plans described below. All remittances should be by certified 
check, bank draft, money order or your own personal check. 



Cash in Full with Order 



Building Loan 



A cash discount of Five Dollars is allowed off 
of the cash price of any home when the full 
amount is sent with the order. The cash price 
of each home is shown on the price list which 
is enclosed. This price includes everything 
listed under the specifications, including pre- 
paid freight, in accordance with our guaran- 
tee. 



r\ One-Third with Order, 
^ Balance on Delivery 

If you prefer to send one-third of the cash 
price with your order, you may do so, and 
then pay the remaining two-thirds when the 
materials arrive and you take delivery. Under 
this method of payment no cash discount is 
allowed. 



3 Five-Day Examination 

Deposit the full purchase price for your home 
in your own bank. Fill out the order blank. 
Ask your bank to fill out the "Letter of De- 
posit" on the back of the order. Mail the 
order to us. The materials will be shipped to 
you for five days' examination. The bank will 
not release the money to us until the five-day 
examination period is over, and you find 
everything satisfactory. Under this plan no 
monthly payment terms or cash discount are 
allowed. 



If you are planning on financing your new 
home through a Bank, Building & Loan As- 
sociation or other financial institution we are 
ready to co-operate by arranging terms of 
payment that will be mutually satisfactory. 
When you have made arrangements for your 
loan, then fill out the order blank and mail it 
to us with the name of the loaning agency 
you are dealing with. No payment is required 
with the order under these terms as we will 
arrange with the loaning agency for payment 
as the construction work progresses. 



5 Monthly Payment Plan 
Three Years to Pay 

For homebuilders who find that it is not con- 
venient to meet the regular cash terms, we 
have developed a convenient monthly payment 
plan. A small down payment is required with 
the order and the balance is then payable in 
equal monthly payments extended over a pe- 
riod of either two or three years, whichever 
you prefer. 

If you own a lot free and clear or the means 
to obtain one, and a little cash besides, you 
can do like thousands of our customers have 
done, who have used this plan to secure homes 
of their own, and who could never otherwise 
have done so.

Liberty Home you want to bund.
